    Hello Folks, I recently got my oil pan gasket replaced since it was leaking a lot. Ever since the repair was done, I am hearing squeal from the idler pulley/serpentine belt area. I had replaced the serpentine belt, idler and tensioner assembly a year ago. The repair shop says that the oil pan...

    I'm currently going through about 1 quart of oil every 300-400 miles. I had the valve stem seals replaced about 2 years (12,000 miles) ago which fixed the same issue back then. Oil consumption has progressively increased over the past several months. I did the 10 minute idle/stomp test and saw...

    Just got back from BMW with an $1100 quote for a repair on my oil pan. The shop sent an email claiming: "There is a transmission oil leak coming from the transmission oil pan. This repair totals $1071... and would cover leaking transmission oil pan and associated gaskets." I have no desire to...

    Hey guys, I have searched these forums up and down for anyone in the same boat as myself and I couldn't find anything so I was hoping I could give you all a rundown on the problem. I am losing about a quart of oil every 200 miles or so in my manual 02 325ci. An extreme amount I know. My car...

    Hello all. I love this forum. I've been driving a '07 e92 335i for 6 months and I'm in love with it. I am a college student. I am on a budget, I will take the car to a mechanic for the first time. I got a pre-purchase inspection done before I bought the car and these are the issues I have...

    I have recently acquired a 2007 BMW 530xi (N52) with 86K miles on it. This is my first car and I am really new at DIY, but am interested in developing that side of my over time. In any case, I took the car for a checkup to an indy repair shop in NYC and the guy has identified an oil pan gasket...

    need a look/judgement by a pair of experienced eyes: is this how the engine oil pan gasket leaks? [first two pics: front engine block from below, from the passenger side (front of the vehicle is on the right)] [the third pic: same thing, front engine block from below, but from drivers side...

    Hello- My car has 65k miles on it, developed a major oil leak last month. The shop that I go to diagnosed a leaking oil filter gasket which they told me upfront could be one of multiple leaks. The filter gasket was fixed but the car continued to leak oil, I went to another shop to top off...

    I am working on my buddy's 2000 323i and this is my first time working on a foreign model. He has severe oil leaks which have been identified to be the oil pan gasket & crankshaft seal. 1) The oil pan does not have a typical bolt plug so I assume it is a torque head. Does anyone know off-hand...

    I have just finished replacing my cooling components (water pump, thermostat, associated hoses, belts, pulleys and tensioners) along with replacing the oil gasket bracket gasket and the oil line from the cylinder head back to the oil bracket. All good stuff. Except.... In the process of...

    Summary: This may be a silly question, but is it a worthy alternative to use The Right Stuff (or similar product) silicone gasket sealer instead of replacing a leaking oil pan gasket? Background: Hi all, I’ve got a 2002 530i with 119k miles that is leaking/eating a lot of oil. It’s been this...

    I have a 325i with 157,000 miles on it. I don't know much about cars but am slowly learning so bear with me. My car has been leaking oil (about a quart every 2 months/1000 miles). I took it to a mechanic and they put a UV dye in and told me that I have several leaks but the biggest leak is...

    First off, I've been reading Bimmerfest forums for several months now, and everyone sounds like they know what they are talking about, or are simply interested in their cars performance, as I am. Here is my story, I hope you all can help me out with some of the problems I've been having. I'm...

    My local indy shop here in Korea is doing some engine work so I would like your opinion as to what else I should do for PM. E53 M54 110K miles. Background: A couple months ago my expansion tank busted while driving ~100mph. I didn't see the low coolant light until 10-15 minutes later. I pull...

    Having a rough time getting the upper oil sump to separate from the engine block. Could use some help figuring out what I am doing wrong. 1. The engine block has been raised a couple of inches. 2. removed both output shafts and drive axle from the front differential. 3. Front timing case is...
  19. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Can anyone offer some advice on replacing the upper oil pan gasket on an '07 750li? A video link or good instructions with pictures would be great. I'm in limbo whether to pay an Indy a mint to perform the repairs or to do it myself. I just want to know how complex the whole disassembly...
  20. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Well.. after further review and inspection... and, with some advice from you guys.. It looks like our '87 325is needs an oil pan gasket.. My son has a friend with an E30 who has some mechanical experience (and, an engine hoist), so they are going to try and tackle this, themselves. So.. as...
